Cultural Resources: Popular riverfront picnic spot.

Green Point is located at the end of Green Point Road, south side of entrance to Warwick Creek, west of Secretary, Dorchester County.  Green Point was covered by a grove of massive pine and cedar trees lining an expanse of sandy beach.  This was a popular spot for picnics.  A pavilion was built for picnickers.  On the point itself an oysterhouse operated in the 1910s.  In 1914 a hotel was built.  Both the hotel and pavilion were converted to homes.
